[VIDEO] Toyota Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept By Gazoo Racing unveiled in Tokyo
The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently pulled the wraps off the Gazoo Racing’s Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept, during the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.
According to the Japanese based automaker, the Toyota Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept is coming with a carbon fiber roof, which is allowing the model to weigh 6 kg (13 lbs) less than the standard version. The Toyota Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept has something in common with the impressive Lexus LFA, and the model has been designed to capitalize on the lightweight construction techniques made for the supercar which has been recently sold out.
Toyota says that the reduced weight of the Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept is also lowering its center of gravity by 3.5 mm. The Toyota Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine, which is producing a total output of 318 HP (234 kW) and it has a peak torque of 380 Nm (280 lb-ft). The unit is sending power to the rear-wheel drive through a six-speed automatic transmission. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment.
Just as the Japanese automaker – who vowed to set straight its safety records – starts a 690,000 pickup trucks recall, Toyota could also face a US investigation for another unintended acceleration flaw.
